5 Health Benefits To Salmon

1. Salmon makes you both smarter and happier.

If you eat salmon on a consistent basis, you reduce the risk of depression and dementia.

Basically, your brain is nearly 60%  fat. And most of that is the omega-3 fatty acid DHA – found in salmon. So when you eat salmon, you keep your brain fat and happy.

2. Salmon helps cardiovascular health.

Whenever you eat salmon, you get high levels of omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA. Plus, you get all of salmon/s healthy fats – which offer you many cardiovascular benefits – including decreasing  inflammation and lowering risk of blood clotting.

If you eat eat salmon 2 to 3 times weekly, you’ll lower the risk of heart attacks, strokes, arrhythmia, high blood pressure and high triglycerides.

3. Salmon helps osteoarthritis and other inflammatory joint conditions.

Salmon contains small proteins called bioactive peptides (including esteemed “calcitonin” ) which have been shown to increase, regulate and stabilize collagen synthesis in human osteoarthritic cartilage. (Note: That’s a fancy shmancy way of saying it helps build strong bones and joints!)

4. Salmon offers lots of vitamin D.

Vitamin D gets a big “A+” when it comes to helping people to maintain their optimal health.

Vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and type-1 diabetes.

(Note: One can of salmon, contains a day’s worth of vitamin D!)

5. Salmon protects eyes.

If you wat salmon twice a week, you will significantly decrease the risk of “macular degeneration” — a chronic eye condition that leads to loss of vision.
